Rosemarie Durr

Rosemarie creates exquisite hand thrown pottery which is more reminiscent of china than pottery. It is this fineness that gives people such enjoyment using it. The distinctive powder blue glaze is uplifting and fits into every home and lifestyle. All the pots in her range come in plain blue or blue with jade. Because they are made from stoneware clay and fired to 1300 degrees they are perfect to use in the dishwasher, oven and microwave.

Rosemarie's background is in design which shows in her work. The simple line and full form of her shapes have been influenced  by ancient eastern artists as well as inspired by nature and the surrounding woodlands of Castlecomer Estate Yard and Discovery Park.

Having trained in the Crafts Council of Ireland's world renowned pottery skills course, Rosemarie graduated with the Student of the Year award. She worked as a production potter in some of Ireland's leading pottery studios for several years. After this, she worked from the Kilkenny design studios in the Castle Yard where she started to create her own range of tableware. In 2004 she and her husband Andrew Ludick moved to Castlecomer Estate Yard. They set up a workshop together creating their individual ranges as well as collaborative work. In 2006 they opened their beautiful 'Rosemarie Durr Pottery' shop where they sell the full range of their work as well as all sorts of gorgeous finds, from aprons to floormats.

Andrew Ludick

Andrew Ludick graduated with a major in illustration from the Columbus College of Art in 2000. He has worked in many graphic arts fields from editorial illustrator, to mural painting as well as fine arts painting. He is originally from the USA but has been a resident in Ireland for the past 6 years. In Ireland he has pursued painting and drawing and has had several exhibitions of his work in Kilkenny and Dublin. For the past four years he has been focusing his craftsmanship on ceramics.

Andrew hand builds forms using white earthenware clay and decorates them with coloured slips. Each one is a unique piece of art in its shape and decoration. Several handbuilding techniques are used to make the pieces. Once built, the form is treated as a blank canvas on which he applies patterns and decoration. They are then coated and finished with a glossy clear glaze. Andrew's main influences are the arts and designs from indigenous cultures of Africa and the Americas as well as work by artists such as Paul Klee,  Joan Miro, Thelonious Monk and Eric Dolphy.
